Dr. Len Horowitz's explanation about exactly who is behind this flu outbreak. Horowitz is an excellent researcher. But I think promoting his product, as well, was not a smart move, public relations-wise.
Mexican Flu Outbreak 2009: SPECIAL REPORT by Dr Leonard Horowitz:
Article mentioning Novavax and Novartis vaccine competition:
"Novavax is eager to show how its technology can compete with the big, egg-based vaccine plants being constructed by Novartis and Sanofi Aventis, Singhvi said. ‘I think we are catching up.'”

I do not believe that all vaccines are necessary, and some do have potential side effects (such as the polio vaccine--paralysis link). But they serve a greater good than the small likelihood of suffering such a side effect.
Again, while you can turn your back to modern medicine, DO NOT just run blindly to the nearest vitamin shop.
You need to educate yourself on the products.
They have side effects. Ephedra, a natural supplement, will affect blood pressure.
Vitamin C will affect the kidneys. And so on.
If you are going to switch to alternative medicine, please try to find out the side effects of what you are taking.
I have read much on here that gives good advice on natural treatments, but mentions none of the potentially harmful side effects.

I got my second flu shot ever 2 years ago. It was free at the health department and I thought, what the hell, just in case. Worst idea ever. Within 2 days I was sick. Vomitting, fever etc that lasted for 2 weeks. I haven't been that sick during any flu season before or since that shot and I am never going to get one again. Total BS imho

not that i think flu vaccine is particularly useful or necessary but to be fair, regardless of how many people made x dollars, small pox and polio are pretty much a non-issue these days.
just jamming vaccines in there willy nilly might be a a bit irresponsible but the idea that "vaccines are bad, m'kay" seems a bit short sighted to me.

I was watching the news, and they had a reporter out in Mexico at a pig farm, and they were claiming that the swine flu came from that place called "Smithfields", or something.
Obviously the company denied it saying "we vaccinate all our pigs for swine flu".
So I was thinking, what if something went wrong at the vaccine manufacture? What if the vaccine they are giving these pigs actually caused the mutation of the swine flu?
